Yeah I know what you mean its what I'm worried about but unfortunatly the bottle just says the amount you put in for the size of the tank and to do a water change before you dose again - it doen't say exactly how many times its safe to keep repeating the cycle. I'll see how he goes like I say he was looking better this morning. As for the loach I'm not sure what type he is... hes not a side sucking one he's a bottom dweller - brown, speckled with black, nice whiskers! I've never seen him interact with any of the other fish he just kinda likes to hide and rumage in the gravel for food. Definatly the most nervous/shy of all my fish. I'll keep you posted about the pop-eye - I'm not sure what you mean about the out of proportion or just swollen question?
I dont mind snails - I've had a couple in the past the last one died not long ago I don't know what of - whats the normal life span? I'd had mine two years but he was adopted so I'm not sure how old he was. Never had any problems with them multiplying like my Aunts though. I put it down to I've had coldwater and shes had tropical, maybe the warm water snails tend to make more babies? Just guessings I've no real knowledge of them to be honest.
Well I didn't want to speak too soon but seeing as you asked - this morning when I was look at him before I went to work I thought it definatly looked better its still swollen but before it was kind of upturned as well which seems to have righted itself - I'm very excited, I so much want to make him better. I done a 30% water change three days ago and was thinking of putting in some more med in a few days (thats if the eye is still swollen of course) Do you think thats a good idea or not? I'd appreciate your thoughts - this is the first sick fish I've ever had to deal with.
No real signs of improvement yet but I only put the second stage of the med in the tank last night. Like I said previously the blood spot seems to have cleared since she went solo in the hospital tank so fingers crossed that could be a good sign I'll keep you informed. Thanks to Goldy & Fishy feet for your time.
That picture you sent WAS my fish when i bought her.. a lovely little pure blackmoor, however about a year ago she went through a complete colour change and now is gold with a silver belly. I was advised at the time this was due to inpure breeding and the fish had hit puberty causing hormone levels to change and cause the colour change. Have you heard of this before? Anyway the fish is about three years old now and the eye is definately is out of proportion to the other eye. There was a little blood spot at first aswel though this seems to have cleared now. She was treated twice in the main tank and is currently on the third treatment in the hospital tank. If you think the anti internal bacteria is good maybe I'm just expecting too much too fast. I'll keep her in the hospital tank and continue with the treatment. I've taken the sponges out the filter to stop them taking the med out the water... is this the right thing to do?
Any advise welcome on this..... I have a coldwater moor who I think has pop eye, I think she got it because I got a larger tank but took a while to upgrade the filter..the water quality dropped..I hold my hands up. Now i have put her in a hospital tank and have been treating her with INTERPET ANTI INTERNAL BACTERIA but it seems to be having no effect. I keep repeating the dose im worried about constantly putting chemicals in with her and am unsure how safe it is to keep repeating it like this. Does anyone have any advise on a more effective treatment?
